Google Followers updated

UPDATE !!!
Here's what I did


1) Stop Following your Site (Manage on Dashboard)
2) Go to Edit My Profile on your dashboard to the right of your picture
3) Check the box next to "Share My Profile"

4) Go Back to your blog and click on your little picture in the GOOGLE FOLLOWERS BOX and what you should see when you click on your picture is your profile info then the link back to your blog then the sites you have joined..

About me

I'm just a girl that loves life and all the sweet little things that make each day special.

Sites I've joined


hope this makes it a little clearer
Sweet dreams ya'll, Cherry




I wanted to let everyone know that you need to check out your Google followers for two things the first is in detail over at It's So Very Cheri after reading her post I went to check out mine and yes my little blue flower was there and all the sites I have joined but the link to my blog was not.

I followed her instructions and mine is now fixed so I started going through some of my followers and found a couple within the first few. Miss Daisy yours is one of them so please check it out so people will be able to find you straight from the followers button .

The next thing is over the weekend I got three new followers one had a picture of a very pretty young women that linked back to an on line poker site, the second on was a shirtless hunky guy and yes he was nice to look at but he also linked back to an on line poker site and third was a sweet looking momma with child that also went back to the poker site.
I blocked each of these which you can do from your Dashboard under Followers ...

Hope this help now off to get a hair cut ya'll have a fun day
hugs, Cherry

  1. Thank you Cherry! You are absolutely right, there are people who do not follow our blogs, but use our blogs to promote their sites. I also have another problem - there are comments in Japanese that come to my post with the picture of me, a guide and my huge salmon that I caught in Alaska. When I clicked on one of them, I got to a Japanese porno site. Good thing is I reject all those comments(I don't know Japanese), and I also temporarily hid that post. I'm just curious what my fishing pic has to do with that site? Me and our guide are fully dressed. Maybe, they like a naked fish?

  7. Hi Cherry,

    Thanks for pointing out the problem. This is exactly the kind of thing that I feel Blotanical is really good for. I probably wouldn't have found out about this in any other way.

  8. It's getting pretty bad these days. Between the stolen email accounts asking for money, the comments that link to non-gardening sites and these followers.

    I recently QUIT TWITTER because I was getting so many porn sites trying to be my followers. I also got fed up with the constant tweets where people try to get you to buy things. It's like constant advertising!

  16. Cherry, I am really thankful to you for writing this post. I have been having sleepless nights lately because of a follower with a picture of an almost naked lady that links to porno sites and downloads. As I don't really understand the online google help jargon, I didn't know who to turn to for help. After following the instructions here, I have managed to block it. This is God send. Yahoo! Thank you so much for helping me get back my peace of mind, Cherry. My many hugs to you.
